Guest Bedroom | The Befores

The time has come to finally complete a guest bedroom. At our old house, our guest bedroom served as a storage for boxes I did not want to deal with going through. You know what I am talking about right?

Well, luckily our guest bedroom at the new house was occupied for the first few months and now that it is free again we want to complete it before it becomes a dumping ground  (which honestly it already has a little).

So let's get to the befores because whats a makeover without showing the starting point but first let me start off apologizing about the lighting of the photos. I just got my Nikon Coolpix P530 for Christmas and I am still learning how to adjust the lens.

This is the view if you would be entering the room after coming out of the laundry room and you can already see the random stand in there.
Now you see, I also have my sister's TV stored in here as well as a random stand. Anywho, I am most excited about this view because I have curtains that are on the way and they should be here any day.

Looking towards the closet and the entry of the bedroom. I also have plans to re-model the closet as well but that will be a whole other project at a different time.

And that is a pile of pillows that need to be cleaned but I am ashamed to say that I have been too lazy to deal with them so I stuffed them in here and closed the door. Dumping ground much?

 One last look when you enter in the bedroom.
For a better understanding of the layout, I created this thingy mahjig. The random things will be removed and will not be apart of the gameplan. Speaking of gameplan, I have already been working on items for the direction of this room but I will save that for another post.

Do you have a dumping ground? What do you use your spare bedroom for? Does anyone else hate washing pillows?

Breaking Rules Pt. 1 | Outfit Repeater

I'm not a fashion expert by any means, I've just worn what I liked but I always followed the "rules." You know the rules:

•No white after Labor Day
•Do not mix patterns or prints
•Match your shoes with your belt and bag
•Do not repeat an outfit
Blah blah blah

I was very guilty of sticking to them but let's talk about being an outfit repeater offender. 

To me an outfit was created by the shirt and pants. I didn't see the accessories as part of the outfit, they were just accessories.  I was so concerned about wearing the same shirt so close together that I would often buy shirts that didn't make a large statement so no one would remember them. However, if I did run across a shirt that I loved but knew it would be remembered I would wait months in between before wearing it again.

But you know what? Who cares if someone remembered you wore the same shirt last week or even two days ago (just remember to wash). I love this striped shirt and I want to get the most out of it. Thanks to Cassie, I have finally began to grasp that mixing and matching accessories and layers can create so many different looks. You don't need a closet full of clothes to create new looks each week, we just have to learn to use what we have.

I wore this outfit two weeks ago.

This outfit is from last week.

I am having so much fun with my closet now that I dumped these so-called "fashion rules" and create looks that I enjoy wearing because they make me feel good.

Are you a rule follower? Or are you are rule breaker?
